"Jewell, I just want you to narrate my life..."
for a time I worked on a little brand handle/campaign called MORE, TBS, and TruTV's effort to bring their diverse, black-forward programming and their leaders behind the camera to the forefront. When Juneteenth came around and they wanted to do more than just a little photo and a copy blurb, my team and I were all for it. with some great emphatic copy (humble brag) and moving VO work (modest brag) -- Freedom Day was felt.
this one? this one is pretty special because I wrote it and... wow, it was a character. while securing the social campaign for Godfather of Harlem Season 3, the team and I thought that it would be pretty dope to illustrate the "Lament of Bumpy Johnson" concept by actually producing it. so hear me as I spit his tale in my best gritty, back alley griot voice.
the "how to pronounce Pampelonne…" campaign is quite real because I truly had to learn how to pronounce it before I mastered the delivery of it. flirty, vivacious, curious, and delightful– Pampelonne wants to be the reason why you’re caught sippin' with a smile. delivering VO (that I didn't write) enriches my process as an ACD-- you've got to be able to take direction quickly and without incident as easily as you give it!
